I actually like Ta Som BETTER than Ta Prohm. What a peaceful, beautiful spot! Make sure you walk the entire grounds to the very back. It was a special, unexpected surprise! Ta Som really was one of our most-loved temples from our visit. I whole-heartedly...More

This was the only temple we encountered children selling to tourists inside the site. Please remember though, school is compulsory from the age of 6. If you must buy from these families, buy from the adults rather than the children. The temple is small, but...More

Not as famous as Ta Prohm with its association of Tomb raider, this rustic and semi derelict temple with its Bayon faces in the Grand Circuit is well worth a visit. It has tree growing out of the ruin similar to Ta Prohm and hence...More

I’ve said this about a few temples, but this has a stark resemblance and feel to Ta Prohm without the massive crowds. This one won’t take you very long to examine but you’ll rather want to go slow and take many pics as the trees...More

It is really small temple comparing to the rest in this location. Also not many people really visit it. We had our private TucTuc so we were free to move and cover all temples there. However not all tour will take you there.

It's a small temple, and it emits a different kind of ambience from other temples. The carvings were fascinating too.

My favourite on the grand circuit - the Bayon faces are amazing and I love how it hasn’t been restored and left to the jungle. Really beautiful temple.

Tiny version of Ta Prohm. Attraction is the doorway at the back with massive tree growing around it with "Bayon" face statue above it. Major photo-op.

Ta Som is a small temple, built at the end of the 12th century. Located north east of Angkor Thom and just close of Neak Pean. Part of a Grand Circuit Tour. Lesser known, enjoy trees and other vegetation growth. Largely unrestored.

Although Ta Som is part of the Grand Circuit, it is frequently skipped by tourists who are more interested in visiting the better-known temples around. The temple was left largely unrestored, with numerous trees and other vegetation growing among the ruins.I personally like this place...More
